Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
Saint Joseph's University is pleased to announce that it has signed an articulation agreement with Villanova University's M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing that will provide priority admissions consideration for SJU students in Villanova's BSN Express Program.
Saint Joseph’s University will host a variety of events throughout February to mark Black History Month. The programs celebrate the historical and ongoing social, political, spiritual, artistic and economic contributions of African-American communities.
On Monday, Jan. 15, Saint Joseph’s University will join the nation in honoring the legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. with community service, an art exhibit and prayer. The events are part of a yearlong celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s historic visit to the University.
